After 3 months, i finally put some more time into the rocket. Got the seperation rails on nose cone, tip of nose cone painted, and nose cone sep rails painted silver. I masked off the sep rails before painting the nose tip black. I little bit of one of the sep rails peeled away when unmasking. Might have helped if i had clear coated the entire nose cone prior to masking.

Bob,

Also to be aware of that I have noticed on my birds on some of these wraps the edges seem to not stick as well. My guess is just a little finger oil seems to degrade its adhesion. I've had to put a small amount of white glue under them to tack them down.

Before handling decals and sticker that I want to be "perfect" I de-oil my
hands but spraying a liberal amount of Brake-Parts cleaner on a clean towels
and thoroughly wipe my hands down, make sure if it is a towel that there is
no fabric softener on it.
